    New fork, old caliper. Need adaptor?

    I have a 2005 Trek Fuel 80. I got a Reba to replace the crappy Manitou Splice Comp. The stock Hayes HFX-9 brakes are post mount. Where do I get an adaptor to convert from post mount to IS so I can use the same caliper and rotor?

    Thanks!

    They are available just about everywhere but yeah can be tough to navigate some sites Universal and Chainreaction are the easiest to find. Many different companies make these things so maybe a call to your lbs or favorite online retailer will get you some options if you need. I notice Universal only has a 160mm listed, they list Hope I.S. to post adapters in more sizes.

    Hope IS to post is for using IS mount calipers on post mount forks.

    Avid, Shimano, Hayes, A2Z. They all make the adapters, and they're all the same profile. Just get one for the appropriate rotor size and direction (front/rear).
